Police Accountability Board Member Ida Perez Steps Down, City to Begin Search to Fill Northeast District Seat

After two years of service, Ida Perez is stepping down from her position as the PAB Board Member representing the Northeast District. 

“For the last two years, Ida Perez has served as a personal mentor and a dear friend,” said PAB Executive Director Conor Dwyer Reynolds. “Most importantly, Ida has been instrumental in developing the PAB from a band of nine volunteers into a government agency with the resources and staff to fulfill its mission. From her push to establish language accessibility in our work to her focus on ensuring proper policing of Latino communities, Ida has been a strong advocate for her constituents as the Board representative for the Northeast District. Her commitment, passion and work ethic have set the standard for membership on the PAB Board.” 

“Ida served as a great asset to the PAB,” said City Council President Miguel Melendez. “She brought great energy and perspective to the work. We will work diligently to find another committed resident from the Northeast to fill the void. An announcement for the replacement process will be forthcoming.” 

Ida’s resignation is effective immediately.

The PAB will be working with City Council to identify candidates who can serve as the Board Member serving the Northeast District in the days to come. Interested candidates may contact pab@cityofrochester.gov for updates on the application timeline and process.
